Stainless Steel Mix Tank
Mix Tank and Mixing Vessel
Do you want to eliminate finger pointing? Mixer shaft does not fit? Have one reliable source……
The WMPMix Tank Package. Fast startups, mixer run test prior to vessel shipping to you, all issues and problems taken care of prior to your getting the process mixing vessel. You can drastically reduce startup time and frustration and save money and time by sourcing your mixer and tank package with us.
More typical questions are eliminated such as: are all components designed and matched for efficiency and performance. Do the cleaning devices reach every corner and do not interfere with shafts and impellers. Is the instrumentation properly located to avoid false readings. Is heat transfer jacketing is sized for batch loads or zoned for flexibility. The whole process from shaft sizing to seal design to location of ports and instruments is more effective when it comes from one source. WMP combines tank design expertise with mixer/agitator extensive experience to offer a wide range of creative and successful mix tank offerings and technology. Some of the areas which we offer expertise and competitive package pricing:
· STAINLESS STEEL MIX TANKS
· PLASTIC TANKS AND POLY PROCESS VESSELS WITH AGITATION
· HIGH VISCOSITY MIXING SYSTEMS, LOW AND/OR HIGH SHEAR AGITATION OPTIONS
· SANITARY AND BIOPHARM TANKS AND MIXING VESSELS
· IBC TOTES WITH INTEGRAL AGITATOR
METAL FABRICATION: 304ss / 316Lss / Hast C / AL6XN are typical metal tank materials
ELASTOMERS: Gaskets and O-rings are fabricated from food-grade compounds and USP VI ratings
SURFACE FINISH: polishing to specification (ie: 10Ra polish), passivation, electropolishing, PTFE and ETFE coatings. Profilometer readings available upon request.
MIX TANK CLEANING: THE SANITARY easy to clean SANIFOIL IMPELLER. For mix vessels where CIP and cleanability is vital, the EASY TO CLEAN Sanifoil impellers are the way to go. This unique mixing impeller is fully cleaned without typical “shadowing” seen on most industrial style propellers/impellers. All Sanifoils are fabricated, polished, and electropolished. The curved leading edge of this mixing blade allows CIP solution to properly coat and clean the underside of the blades. The free flowing hub design has no flat surfaces or crevices for product collection and contamination. The 316L stainless steel blades are available in a few different hub styles, they can be welded to the shaft, set screwed for easy to remove and adjustable on the shaft, to very aseptic sanitary designs.
CIP SPRAY BALL TANK CLEANING SYSTEMS – from simple static spray balls to precision cleaning with impingement Gamajet spray nozzle cleaning machines we can provide the proper cleaning of your mixing tank. Portable CIP Cleaning Systems are available to suit your needs.
DESIGN AND APPROVAL DRAWINGS: depending on sophistication of the mixing process, we can utilize Computational Fluid Dynamics and provide MixTank drawings in solidworks 3D models.
CFD AND SCALE UP SERVICES: we can provide resources of independent engineering services to help you with scale up and scale down on mixing processes, including CFD and lab scale mixing studies to optimize your process
LAB TESTING: we provide free lab testing to quantify your material characteristics, and help confirm what mixer size, hp, speed, impeller geometry is the right choice for your desired process results. Some of the tools use are viscometers, density, particle size analysis, and actual mixer run tests to confirm HP requirements and behavior of your mixture.
Our mixer lab will:
· Define the fluid characteristics of your mixture
· Assist in the development of new products and formulations
· Quantify and measure mixer performance
· Provide mixer process guarantee based on testing
MULTISHAFT MIXERS AND AGITATORS FOR MORE COMPLEX BLENDING SYSTEMS:
· Bottom Sweep style agitators
· Multiple Agitation System with sweep anchor, propeller, and high shear
· Side Sweep for scraping sidewall and bottom for effective heat transfer
· Counter Rotating Mixers
Sanitary Mixer Features:
Tri-clamp TC mounting
Electropolish and passivated (5-20Ra) finish for wetted surfaces standard for Bioreactors
Gear-reduced drive for low-shear mixing, or direct drive for higher speed
Non-toxic, edible food grade lubricants used in gear reducers
Solid shafts to eliminate potential source of contaminants (pin hole leaks)
Clean and CIPable mixing impellers
Wide selection of sealing systems:
Dry running, single mechanical seals for ease of maintenance
Single and double cartridge-type mechanical seals
Low pressure lip seals
CIP contaminant seals and slingers
Sanitary, CIPable, adjustable hub, proven via ribo test.
Sanitary CIPable impellers, proven via ribo test.
Able to disassemble shaft and impellers without pulling drive from vessel.
Enlarged seal bore and debris well.
Seal assembly attached to quill shaft (not to mixer shaft) for ease of testing and maintenance.
Telescoping shaft accommodates hinged tops.
SANITARY STEADY BEARING: When the occasional steady bearing is required, this twist-off sanitary option can be replaced with one hand, without shaft removal, and features easy and complete CIP coverage.
